, in fact, it's going ahead. and the idea of deferring has not only the obama administration and the democratic party appeaplectic, t insurance is scared because of the individual mandate because the result will be to tear up their business model as you know and tear up profits. we're looking at the prospect here, if there isn't careful reasoning and a careful understanding amongst everyone here about a direction to head toward that we're talking about one-sixth of the economy that is now vulnerable because a website, as the president put it, didn't work because obama care itself is built now on what we see as a very, very faulty assumption and presumption because of the mandate that young people are going to sign up for health care that they typically do not need. these risks are very high. where are the republicans headed now, and what is the course you all will follow? >> well, we are going to continue to get to the bottom of this. you know, you pointed out one major issue here, and the cybersecurity issue, as you heard, that we're very concerned about that. you know, ther
and the religious rule on the other. faced with these daunting realities, the obama administration maybe in the midst of a strategic re-evaluation of our role in the region, one that is far more modest in ambition, more temp rate in expectation and use of the diplomatic, not military resources. this stands in stark contrast of the george w. bush administration to deliver a freedom agenda sometimes through the barrel of a gun that would bring democracy to a region that has known mostly misrule. that doctrine or its application proved entirely unworkable as the society's freed of their authoritarian shackles had nothing on which to build. we may be relearning this in libya as well. these setbacks and the realization that democracy building is a generational undertaking must not lead us to disengage from the region. the forces freed by the arab spring will not be contained, and i still believe they can lead hundreds of millions of people to more representative forms of government, more economic opportunity and we must hope more tranquility and peace within their borders. the united states n

out overnight about the fact that the obama administration actually knew that maybe as high as 80% of people with individual policies would lose them, at the same time the president repeatedly said you can keep the policy you have if you like it, now you have to ask the question, when did he know it? what did he know? we'll ask that question of secretary sebelius tomorrow in the energy and commerce committee. these are issues of trust that the democrats are going to have to respond to when we go into this election cycle a year from now. >> do you have to campaign? does your republican candidates have to campaign beyond -- do you have to not look like you're rooting for failure? do you have to campaign on a solution that -- i mean, one thing the house republicans haven't had is their own health care plan to run on. >> right. >> i know paul ryan was coming up with one. is that the idea that you'll rally around what paul ryan is writing for january? >> well, first of all, two things. one, you do have to talk about how you're going to solve problems, which is what we did in the energy

haven't people been fired? why? because that's not obama's m.o. what happens in this administration stays in this administration. now, doesn't that tell you something? do any of you really think he didn't know? consider this, you've got a great job. your boss assigned you a task with an unlimited budget but a deadline. you swear it will be done. when it isn't, your boss is mortified and publicly humiliated. do you think for one minute you would keep your job? i don't know about you but anyone who worked for me would be afraid to even show up at work. but not in washington. not with the obama administration. it's a badge of honor to simply say, i take responsibility. no consequences. no sanctions. and more often than not, a promotion. this week as i sat in that washington hearing room listening to secretary sebelius who ironically is from kansas, i literally thought i was in the land of oz. democrats were actually congratulating her on a job well done. thanks her for the millions of americans who owe her more than anyone else a debt of gratitude for their health care. really? i know
.c. circuit in favor of the obama administration's aggressive administrative overreach. if these tactics succeed, the senate will be weakened as a institution and the nation's second highest court will be transformed into a far-left ideological body. but i would also remind my colleagues what goes around comes around in the united states senate. when republicans control the senate and we have a republican in the white house, i would warn my colleagues that the same rules that they put into effect with the nuclear option will be used to their disadvantage then and we shouldn't do it. we shouldn't go there. but it's clear what the motivation is. again, this is not about the efficient administration of justice, impartial justice. this is about getting your way and getting a rubber stamp on the actions of regulatory overreach that are far too common here in washington, d.c. well, it is true that the d.c. circuit court has ruled against the obama administration's regulatory agencies, but it's also true that they've affirmed many of the most important and far-reaching decisions of the obama ad
that one of the obama administration job creating ideas was a dud and a cash for clunkers program paid people 3500 and only created 2,000 jobs and the new cars only got half a mile a gallon better gas mileage. and meanwhile, the republicans who are trying to kill the affordable care act insists it will be a job killer. >> a lot of those people have taken employees, and families who are working there and went from full- time to part- time jobs. they are not able to keep the health care plan they wanted either. >> reporter: the white house said no effort of employers cutting jobs or reducing hours because of obama care's requirement. the companies with more than 50 full- time employees provide health insurance. >> i want to bring in stephen moore fox news contributor. >> you know that it is no proof part- time america going that way because of obama care. >> i was thinking about that when wend all spoke about. that maybe the president needs to get out and talk to small businessmen and women in the country who are tellingous fox news and we get people at the wall street jaurnal that are

is way up in the polls, says he will get rid of it if elected. >> the obama administration is denying a report that advisers considered replacing vice president biden in the 2012 campaign. the claim, though not the first we have heard of it, comes in a new book. fox news media analyst howaurd curts tells us who was next in line. >> a new book monday which happened to be obtained by the times and then the post, said white house officials considered replacing joe biden on the ticket. it's a political eye opener from what we heard in the amateur, which reported the white house put out feelers to see if hillary clinton was interested in taking over the vice president's spot. this latest book now reports that the president's top aides ordered polling and focus groups in late 2011 to determine whether biden should be booted and replaced by clinton. but the idea was dropped after the research found that an obama/clinton ticket wouldn't do much to boost the president's chances. bill daley, who was then the white house chief of staff, told the "new york times" it was due diligence to at least

the obama administration? it is not too over the top. i shouldn't have to do this. i shouldn't have to make these kind of threats. they should provide in a responsible way those who lived through benghazi to be interviewed separate and apart from the obama administration to find out what happened before during and after and i am so sad to say to the families this is the anniversary of the election, a year later the congress really doesn't know anything what happened in benghazi from those who lived through it. >> we are talking about someone like jay johnson, who is the president's nominee to be the new secretary of homeland security or as you can see janet yellen, the new chair of the federal reserve. big jump up. question: how long are you prepared to hold up their nominations and everyone else's, people who are going to be doing and need to do important work for the country? >> the only way this will work is if my republican colleagues get behind me and say to my democratic friend in the senate and the administration we support lindsay's request to be able to talk to the survivors indep
